"The cherry and red berry flavors in this cabernet feel as vivid as if the wine had been pressed yesterday. Spicy notes come up with air, accompanied by a juicy symphony of fruit that doesn't let up - the signature of the terrific 2011 vintage." (02/14)
"Deep cherry red color. With aromas of prunes, chocolate, some notes of Menthol (Caracteristic of the Maipo Valley) and toasted oak. Well structured with persistent and firm tannins." -Winery
"In 1954, on fertile lands close to the capital of Chile, an important politician and businessman, Mr. Maximo Valdes, founded the vineyard 'Houses of Pirque'. With extensive experience in the wine business, he begins planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. After half a century and four generations, the Valdes family has turned these vineyards in the best example of love for the land, and perfection in the quality of its products."
"Today, identified as 'Santa Alicia', as a way of honoring the women that in each generation carry this name, the vineyard continues with its tradition of excellence and prestige, expressed in each bottle are the decades of experience, high technology, and the privileged fruit which results from a marvelous environment." -Winery
